Restless explorer of the soundscape Digital Mass brings Rain into the sacred realm with this new long-form drone work.
"Tired of the agitation of modern life, the German mastermind of Digital Mass has gone for a retreat in a monastery lost somewhere in eastern Europa, during the rainy April of 2012. This was also the occasion to record the sound of rain and some sacred chants, which were later processed, edited and mixed to create a new "Rain" piece for Webbed Hand Records. Despite the the source material, no religious intent was put into this composition, which was simply created as background music for meditation, chilling out or sleeping."
Rain is a series of conceptual tracks produced for Webbed Hand Records. Each "Rain" is a CD-length ambient recording ideal for quiet listening while meditating, writing, or going to sleep. Typically the recordings in this series are minimalistic soundscapes, with motifs played out cyclically rather than progressively, in order to induce relaxed states.
